1 Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, hobbies, pets, etc).
My life is a little bit of a zoo, with six kids, an English Bulldog, an Army Aviator husband, and bunny named General Fluffy Pants. I’m a Colorado girl through and through, unless it’s hockey season, and then my loyalties split to favor my transplant home of New York. Lundqvist. Yum. I spend too much time tying hockey skates for my boys and not nearly enough time kissing my husband. I’m a coffee addict, serial dinner-burner, and foster mom, so when I get a chance to wind down, it’s usually with my guitar and some quiet time.
2 How did you get into writing and why romance?
I’ve always loved writing, and romance seemed the natural path to take since I’m a sucker for kissing and happy endings. I wrote my first book during my husband’s third deployment to keep my thoughts occupied while he flew missions in Afghanistan, and published right after his fourth. Besides, nothing’s better for a book boyfriend addict than getting to write your own!
3 Do you ever re-enact the sex scenes you write about?
Honestly, no, but there’s more than a little “experience” in every scene I’ve written, if you get my meaning. *Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.* And yes, my husband just blushed!
4 Name a romance book or series you would love to see as a movie/TV Series.
OOOH. So many! I think the Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines would be an amazing TV series with all those interweaving characters! (You know… on HBO so we get the good stuff.)
5 Have you ever read a book based solely on its cover?
If I say no, will I be stoned? LOL! I’m a book blurb girl. If the back hooks me, I’m all yours. That being said, Kaleidoscope Hearts by Claire Contreras might be one of my favorite covers of all time!
6 What is your ideal way to end a long day?
Cuddled up next to my husband with a glass of wine and a fantastic read.
7 Describe your ultimate holiday.
My husband took me on a Mediterranean cruise for our 10th anniversary, and set up a vow renewal on a little sailboat off the island of Capri. That pretty much nailed it, and I have no idea if it could ever be topped!
8 Who is your favourite book boyfriend and why?
Kellan Kyle. Hands down. It’s that whole, “Mornin’,” thing that gets me every time!
9 What turns you on and what turns you off? (In men)
Turn offs? Hmmm… misogyny is definitely the biggest one. I’m raising four boys, and you’d better bet they will respect women.
Turn-ons? Definitely that uniform my husband rocks. Yes. Please. Confidence, ambition, green eyes, kindness, humor, and abs don’t really hurt the situation.
10 Boxers or briefs? Or commando??? (On men)
Boxers, or boxer-briefs. Plain briefs make me think of folding my kids’ laundry, so you know that’s not going to get me worked into a frenzy. 😉
11 Who is on your top five “Freebie List”? Who could you sleep with that your partner won’t mind?
1 – Stephen Amell
2 – Channing Tatum
3 – Stephen Amell
4 – Jesse Williams
5 – Stephen Amell
Yes, there’s a pattern. No regrets.
12 You have a table booked for four in your favourite restaurant. Who would you invite to join you?
My husband, my sister, and her husband. There’s nothing more important to me than my family and spending time with the people I love.
13 How can our readers connect with you?
Yes! Please come stalk me!
Thank you so much for having me!!!
